I want to change the icon text. I found it can be done by changing the "itemdesc" in /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/dynamicui.conf file. However, after cpanel update, it's been reverted back. How to make the customization permanent? Thank you.

Use the Bulk Locale editor in WHM to change the name. That change should persist across updates.

Thanks. I've tested this, it works for paper_lantern but not x3. I can see my custom text in /var/cpanel/locale/themes/x3/en.cdb file, but it does not show in cpanel.

Hello,

Please keep in mind we are phasing out the X3 theme until it's eventual removal from the product:

Is there anything in-particular we can help you with in the transition over to the Paper Lantern theme?

Thank you.
